Best Laptop I have ever owned.8/10/2021 11:21:30 AM

Pros: Fast, beautiful matte screen, massive storage capacity, backlit keyboard. Upgradable. USB Type-C, some ports on the back

Cons: The speakers could be better. It's a little on the heavy side, but for the power it packs, I'm OK with that.

Overall Review: I'm not much of a reviewer, but I felt that on this one I had to say something, just because when I was trying to make a decision on this purchase, there were no reviews available here, and I had to go to YouTube in order to get some insights. So far I like this unit. Feels solid and well built. The screen has a 144 Hz Refresh Rate that my eyes appreciate. Also, it's not one of those glossy, super reflective screens that some laptops have. I upgraded the Ram to 32gb DDR4 Dual-Channel @ 3200Mhz from Team Group, added another Samsung 1Tb M.2 SSD, and another 1Tb Samsung regular 2.5" SSD (everything purchased here on Newegg). You can install up to 6Tb of storage on this thing!!! A total of 15 screws need to removed in order to pop the back of it. (Pay attention to the 3 screws inside battery compartment.) I'm not planning to use this for any gaming, as that's not my thing, but I'm sure this laptop will handle any of the photo and video editing that I plan to use it for, as well as regular office work. I like the ports on the back of it. That's hard to find on any other laptop nowadays. Most come with vey few ports and always on the sides. The speakers are not great, but I'm not planning to pump a party with just that. There always Bluetooth and even audio jack options if you want to get lauder. It's not super light or super slim, but consider how much power is in it! I have not tested the battery life yet, as I'm using it on my desk plugged and with two monitors, but others have said that it lasts anywhere from 3 to 4 hours, depending on the work load. So far I like it and recommend it. I have only had it for about a week. I'll update my impressions in a couple months...

Storm Scout...nice case.11/7/2012 10:46:15 AM

Pros: Love the handles cuz I'm always on the move. Lots of room inside and easy for cable management.

Cons: Back fan is not spinning :-( L.E.Ds work but fan is dead...Not cool. Other than that I can't think of anything else.

Overall Review: I recommend this case. Looks nice and the handles on top are a plus. Haven't had any issues with the front USB ports as some others said. Hope I don't ever get them.

Wow, I love it...1/30/2011 12:11:28 AM

Pros: X6, 9m Total cache, super fast cpu, at a price that sales by itself... a piece of art and great work. AMD rocks! Stock heat-sink wasn't the greatest, and I know most people complains about that, but I don't care.Just bought a CoolerMaster 520 and done deal. Most stock fans suck anyways.I have been an AMD fan since I was a kid. My first one was a K6 @1Ghz. I have to recognize that they have improved a lot and they keep good computing accesible for everyone.I don't know about you, but me, nah, I wouldn't pay 1000 dollars for an Intel Hexacore. I don't care how faster or superior they are, but I'd rather buy 5 AMD's. I don't worry about the unlocked multiplier, cuz anyways it O/C really good, and after testing a little,I just left it @3480Mhz super stable.

Cons: Nah, there's no con on this little monster. Buy it and you will just love it!

Overall Review: This is what I have put together so far... AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3.0GHz Six-Core CPU(FAST!!!)

Great chip, cheap hehe.1/29/2011 11:30:51 PM

Pros: Great X2. 6m L3. Those lucky ones can get 3 or 4 cores stable...

Cons: None, it is a Dual Core, and you are are paying for that.

Overall Review: Mine was perfet, no bent pins, worked right outside the box. I wasn't able to unlock any extra cores, but I was not expecting so. Gotta blame that on my cheap Biostar 880G+ MoBo.It is still great as a dual core. I installed it with the stock heat-sink from my x6 1075 and it works bearly warm.

Fair quality,cheap...1/29/2011 11:15:01 PM

Pros: Sounds great, clear highs,fair bass.Sounded good from the begining. Got it for $9.99 & FS(!!!)

Cons: Mmm...nah...none so far...

Overall Review: C'mon, even for 15 or 20 bucks they are not bad. I owned like 3 Skullcandy before($14 at Target), but this one is cool also for the mic and the little button for Ipods and other devices.For me not really much cuz i'm using it with my Sansa,but its there if one day you need it.I like the wire,seems strong and I like the clear color with the metalic look...

Cheap 880 Chipset,HDMI...1/14/2011 10:03:40 PM

Pros: Pretty basic MB,AM3, easy Bios,ACC,support DDR3.I was able to use GSkill 4G(2x2)@1600Mhz easily.Supports up to 6 cores.Fast.Simple...

Cons: Nothing really significant. I had to mess with the BIOS like 10 times back and forth, activating and deactivating settings in orther to get W7 installed.I would get stuck at the setup sreen for hours, and at the end I didn't even now if it was the ACC, or the HTT or what was causing this.I was finally able to finish installation in reasonable time and after that its just running pretty fast w/ a Phenon II 555.

Overall Review: I got 2 of this for friends.One is runing, one will be in like 3 more days.Got them really cheap w/ PS combo.I also think a couple of more USB ports on the back can't hurt nobody.Looks kind of small if installed in a ATX full case.Height is standard mATX, but Deph is kinda 1"-2" shorter.I recommend it if you just want to make a cheap PC for somebody.But if you can spend a few more bucks, go w/ Gigabyte or Asus...

Good,cheap PS.1/14/2011 9:34:04 PM

Pros: Good price.Nice black color.Two fans.

Cons: None so far.I wished it had two SATA plugs,(has only 1) so you so need to buy the extra adaptor for your DVD-RW anytime you build a PC.Just a wish...

Overall Review: Works OK.I cant really tell if is noisy,cuz I have like 5 other fans on my pc, but I don't really care about the noise.I bought 3 of this so far (two for friends PCs,1 for me)and they are working perfect.If you are looking for a gaming PS, get something over 600w.This is only 400,just for a regular use. This is what this PS is powering rt now ... AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 3.0GHz Six-Core CPU(FAST!!!) ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0(GOOD) G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB (4 x 2GB)DDR3 1600(COOL!!!)

Fast little thing...12/27/2010 12:02:16 PM

Pros: My System wasn't complete till I got and installed this thing,and I had spent quite a few bucks already.It boots my W7(64b) 3x faster.I'm getting 7.5 Rate on WEI.You will see the difference...

Cons: I know is new technology and all that, but I think the price is still to much for the size.

Overall Review: I got it for 135 and now it got a little lower.I recommend it.For some reason it took over a week to get to my hands,and the money was pulled from my account right away.I had to call n follow up.It took forever for thr "processing" status of my order...
